    I am planning to run a 240v supply to my greenhoue, which is about 20 yards down the garden, using armoured cable. Any advice would be welcomed, especially on the cable depth under a lawn. I have a spare fuse fuse in my consumer unit.

    There are plenty of topics already about supplying out buildings & using armoured cable.

    star make sure the cable is backed by an rcd as it is outside the protection zone of the house.
    As for the depth of the cable, you should bury the swa at a reasonable depth which will not be disturbed in normal use. IE, under a lawn should not see much digging with a spade.
    Hope this helps.
